The War on Drugs!
Sylvan Esso – Hey Mami
My only complaint with St. Vincent is that she played the two songs she’s played on every other show. I want to see some Prince Johnny, or some Rattlesnake, or some I Prefer Your Love!
Love the new BBNG. You’d think after producing for Earl Sweatshirt and Danny Brown they’d get some recognition round here.
Jasmine Green Tea / End of a Century
And what instrument does their tour opener Dan Deacon play? This is pretty hypocritical and I expected Arcade Fire to be more open-minded about music,
“It could be your first taste of alternative-leaning pop-rock, something that gave you a hint there was something beyond the nu-metal that dominated your hometown’s aesthetic” – that was it for me. I had heard bits of The Strokes and The White Stripes but this was the first band that made me realize how much better “alternative” rock could be than say, Linkin Park or Green Day (I was 14). It started the journey that took me to Modest Mouse and Arcade Fire later in the year, and soon after to Neutral Milk Hotel, Spoon, and My Bloody Valentine. So I would like to thank Franz Ferdinand for being a gateway cool band for suburban 14 year olds.
A Day in the Life
I was hoping lousy with sylvianbriar would get more attention. Understandably people seem to have given up on Of Montreal after their last few messy albums but the new one is really enjoyable.
My biggest issue with Kanye is this: he constantly talks about how he doesn’t want to kiss anyone’s ass yet expects everyone to do the same to him. If he really didn’t care what people thought of him he wouldn’t be blowing up when someone pokes some gentle fun at him.
